A limited number of 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H Mustang vehicles are now available through Hertz’s Adrenaline Collection this summer.

As of Memorial Day weekend, the GT-H vehicles can be rented at 17 of Hertz’s U.S. airport locations in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.

"We want to give Hertz customers a special experience this summer," said Matt Jauchius, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Hertz Global Holdings. "To mark the 50th anniversary of the Rent-A-Racer, we've joined forces with Ford and Shelby once again to introduce the 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H. We're thrilled to make this iconic vehicle available to our customers through the Hertz Adrenaline Collection.”

Hertz first introduced a custom Shelby Mustang as part of its "Rent-A-Racer" program in 1966. Ford supplied the Mustangs with V-8 engines, Shelby added extra performance and style, and Hertz gave customers access to a unique driving experience, according to Hertz.

As a tribute to the original Rent-A-Racer, the companies teamed up in 2006 to produce the 40th anniversary edition Shelby GT-H.
